Detecting a successful submitting, possible?

Scenario: A page creates a pop up and that pop up submits a form. Is there a
way to detect whether the submitting was successful or not, so true/false
could be passed to the parent window?

The normal process of submitting a form results in the server returning
a replacement HTML page to the browser that submitted the form.
Presumably the server knows whether the submission was successful so it
can include in that page a script that tells the pop-up window's opener
that the submission was successful. In the absence of a positive signal
from the returned page the opener would have not choice but assume the
submission to have been unsuccessful.

Of course it is not a good idea to be using pop-ups at all, using
pop-ups as vehicles for separate form submission, or designing in
javascript dependencies into a system that already significantly
unreliable following the attempted use of pop-ups, but that is another
story.

Say I've got a page - myPage.asp - that expects to see the results of a form's POST operation. If it comes from the form, all is fine. However, if someone were to manually type the address in the address bar - http://www.mysite.com/myPage.asp - I'd like to be able to detect that they're trying to circumvent the form and redirect them to the appropriate page using Response.Redirect().

Hi Maybee a little bit of topic, but is it possible to stay on the submitting page once you've clicked submit. This is to get processing done on page B when you submit on page A, and the page should not change. Normally I use a response.redirect to the submitting page, but that can't be done in one case. Mats PS I've found that one solution is to send Response.Status = "204 No Response" but according to some information that won't work...

Hi there, I' m getting a (0x80040E2F) error, if I submit my form, with blank textboxes to my update stored procedure. The stored procedure expect values, so how can I detect if a form field was empty. I've tried testing to see if the form field is null, blank and to count the characters, but I can't get it working. My SQL table allows nulls, so it's not that. thanks in advance Charles

Hi, At the moment i am checking that all the fields have been filled out, at the moment i am using the following... if firstname = "" and surname = "" and address1 = "" and town = "" and county = "" and country = "" and postcode = "" and phone = "" and email11 = "" and email2 = "" and password1 = "" and password2 = "" then is there a better more efficient way of doing this??

I'm working on a project to collect web application usage statistics. What are the recommended ways of detecting whether a browser is JavaScript enabled and/or capable? Obviously I can write a script to invoke something on the server, and if it works, then it works. Is there a better way? I'm looking for the least intrusive way of doing it, from a web application point of view. i.e. I'd like to be able to drop this into an existing...

Every Python programmer gets this message occasionally: IndexError: list index out of range The message tells you where the error occurred, but it doesn't tell you what the range and the offending index are. Why does it force you to determine that information for yourself when it could save you a step and just tell you? This seems like a "no-brainer" to me. Am I missing something?

When using createEvent, an eventType parameter must be provided as an argument. This can be one of those specified in DOM 2 or 3 Events, or it might be a proprietary eventType. My problem is testing for support of particular eventTypes - the DOM 2 Events Interface DocumentEvent says that if the eventType is not supported, it throws a DOM exception. This makes testing rather tough - if you try something like: if (document &&...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
